Attorney General Jeff Sessions Rescinds 24 Guidance Documents

Attorney General Jeff Sessions today announced that, consistent with his November 2017 memorandum prohibiting the Department from making rules without following the procedures required by Congress, he is rescinding 24 guidance documents that were unnecessary, outdated, inconsistent with existing law, or otherwise improper.

“The American people deserve to have their voices heard and a government that is accountable to them. When issuing regulations, federal agencies must abide by constitutional principles and follow the rules set forth by Congress and the President. In previous administrations, however, agencies often tried to impose new rules on the American people without any public notice or comment period, simply by sending a letter or posting a guidance document on a website. That’s wrong, and it’s not good government.

“In the Trump administration, we are restoring the rule of law. That’s why in November I banned this practice at the Department and we began rescinding guidance documents that were issued improperly or that were simply inconsistent with current law.

“Today we are rescinding 24 more and continuing to put an end to unnecessary or improper rulemaking.”

In February 2017, President Donald Trump issued Executive Order 13777, which calls for agencies to establish Regulatory Reform Task Forces, chaired by a Regulatory Reform Officer, to identify existing regulations for potential repeal, replacement, or modification. The Department of Justice Task Force is chaired by Acting Associate Attorney General Jesse Panuccio.

In November 2017, the Attorney General issued a memorandum prohibiting Department of Justice (DOJ) components from using guidance documents to circumvent the rulemaking process and directed components to identify guidance documents that should be repealed, replaced, or modified.

The Task Force identified 25 guidance documents for repeal in December 2017 and has identified 24 more documents to repeal this month.  The Task Force is continuing its review of existing guidance documents to repeal, replace, or modify.

The list of 24 guidance documents that DOJ has withdrawn in 2018 is as follows:

美司法部刚刚宣布:废除大学种族平权入学指导方针

美国司法部长塞辛斯3日下午宣布,废除24项不必要、过时的指导方针,其中包括一项鼓励大学在招生时将种族纳入考量的指导方针。

在司法部发布新闻稿之前,多家媒体报导,美国川普政府将鼓励美国学校在招生过程中忽略学生的种族因素;此举将推翻前总统欧巴马对于“平权措施”(Affirmative action)的政策,欧巴马政府鼓励大学在审核入学申请时考虑种族因素,以促进校园多元化。

塞辛斯透过新闻稿宣布,废除24项不必要、过时、不符合现行法律、或其它不当的指导文件。

塞辛斯表示,过去的政府机构经常在没有任何公告或评论期限的状况下,实施新的规定,只要致函或在网站上发布指导文件即可;这是错的,这不是好政府的作为。

塞辛斯说,因此川普政府开始废除不当发布的指导文件,或不符现行法律的指导文件。

司法部的新闻稿列举废除的24项指导方针,其中有七项与教育机构考虑种族因素相关,包括欧巴马政府于2011年提出建议学校在招生时考虑种族因素,以促进校园的多元化,以及2013年、2014年、2016年法院对“费雪诉美国德克萨斯大学奥斯汀分校”一案的相关文件等。

白人学生费雪2008年控告德克萨斯大学奥斯汀分校,质疑学校因她是白人而不录取,最高法院2016年裁决支持德克萨斯大学奥斯汀分校依“平权措施”的招生作法。
